Hillside Missionary Church
Hillside Missionary Church - Sunday Morning Service - 5/10/20
Thanks for joining us today! Whether you’re a guest or a long-time attendee we’re glad you’re here with us. Hillside is a friendly and caring group of Christians who are here to help people be CONNECTED with Jesus, CHANGED by Jesus, and COMMITTED to the mission of Jesus, and that mission hasn’t changed just because we can’t meet in person. We are continuing to work to glorify God the best way we possibly can! GUESTS: Thanks for joining us today! We truly believe that you’re not here by accident and that God has some amazing plans for your life. If you feel comfortable doing so, feel free to contact us and let us know participating with us online during this time. We’d love to get you connected with us and let you know more about who we are! SERMON SERIES: Our current sermon series is going through the book of Nehemiah and is entitled, “Restoring the Broken.” Today’s message is over chapter 1 and answers the question, “What do I do When My Heart is Broken.” CONNECT: We’d love for you to connect with us online! During this time of social distancing we will be posting our entire service every week on our facebook page and youtube channel. You can also view our services on our website, hmcworship.com, by clicking on the “sermons” page. We’re also posting several devotionals every week on our facebook page. In addition to that, please continue to reach out to your church family through letters, texts, phone calls, and on facebook.

Sometimes in life we encounter situations and issues that break our hearts. Often though times God wants to use our broken hearts to advance His perfect Kingdom. That was the case for Nehemiah, who God used to restore the walls of Jerusalem. Here in chapter 1 we see Nehemiah’s heart broken over the state of these walls and we can also learn…
What to do When Your Heart is Broken:
1. Allow yourself to be broken
Nehemiah 1:4
2. Pray, pray, and pray some more
Nehemiah 1:4-11, Phil. 4:4-7
3. Hold onto God’s promises
Nehemiah 1:5-11, Ps. 1:1-2, Is. 40:31, Jam. 1:5, Ps. 23:4, Rom. 10:13
Reflection Questions:

1. What issue or situation in your life breaks your heart? (i.e. your marriage, homelessness, those who have never heard the Gospel)

2. What’s your typical response to the feeling of your heart being broken? (i.e. ignore it, complain about it, blame someone, ect.)

3. What practical step(s) do you need to take in order to allow God to use your broken heart to advance His perfect Kingdom? Who will keep you accountable to that?
